Wee Memories Challenge #62

When Meg and Robyn came over to the house yesterday, they brought presents! How sweet of them! One of the goodies was a new bottle of nail polish. Purple is actually a nail polish color that I don't already own so this was a welcomed addition. Sally Hansen in Grape Going!.

My realtor stopped by this afternoon and gave me some surprise gifts: a bouquet of flowers and a container to put mail in. I thought it was funny that she gave me the bouquet since I was thinking of buying some flowers yesterday but didn't have enough cash on me AND I bought a vase at a yard sale on Friday. Now I can actually use it! :)
The milk's expiration date was coming up so one of my goals was to use it up in food today (I don't really like the way it tastes just straight). I ended up making instant Oreo pudding and mac and cheese with broccoli and tuna, a spinoff of this recipe.

Here's my take on Wee Memories Challenge #62: Clean and Simple. I've been really wanting to use this butterfly stamp that I bought at a yard sale recently. I used the embossed resist technique with my Distress Inks. By blending the red and gold color, I got the orange color in the middle. I had a scrap piece of polka dot paper that I thought would be a good contrast to the warm colors used with the butterfly. I used a scrap piece of black ribbon to break up the colors. I popped the sentiment on foam adhesive to give the card a little dimension.
